Rookie trying to wipe free space


New Member
Hi, all...

This is my first experience with using Eraser. All I need to do is wipe the free space (unused space) on my hard drives AND on the several Sandisk Cruzer thumb drives I use on a daily basis for work. I've had success with the hard drives, but the thumb drives are giving me some trouble.

The Eraser program gives me an error message that I (or the program) do not have have the right "permissions" to wipe the thumb drive unused space. I am running Windows 7 64-bit on an HP G60-635DX notebook.

How do I go about getting these thumb drives to cooperate? What do I need to do?
Please read the FAQ (link below), in particular the topic "Getting to know Eraser 6", and all will be revealed ...
